Bond Thickness Effects upon Dynamic Behaviour in Adhesive Joints
The influence of adhesive layer thickness on the dynamic behaviour of the single-lap adhesive joints is investigated in this paper. The ABAQUS finite element analysis (FEA) software was used to predict the frequency response functions (FRFs) of the single-lap adhesive joints of different thickness of the adhesive layer. As a reference, the FRFs of a cantilevered beam without joint were investigated as well. It is clear that the FRFs of the four beams are close to each other within the frequency range 0~1000 Hz. It is also found that the composite damping of the single-lap adhesive joint increases as the thickness of the adhesive layer increases.
